Post Friction 1.2.0

Slowdown some types of "spammy" posting.

  1. Xon
    Compatible XF Versions:
    • 1.4
    • 1.5
    Additional Requirements:
    php 5.4+
    Enhanced Search Improvements - Word Count add-on (recommended)
    Updates Duration:
    12 Months ($7.50 Yearly Renewal)
    Visible Branding:
    Introduces friction for low-effort posting. Asks if they are sure and really want to post when:
    • Replying to old threads - global or per thread.
    • Low-word count posts - per thread.
    If the user accepts, this is recorded into the database but there is currently no UI this log.
    More counter measures will be introduced over time.

    Works with the following Content Types
    • Threads
    Per thread options

    Under Thread Tools -> Post Friction;
    (blank = do not apply)

    Example output:

    Known limitations
    1. Not tested without javascript enabled, which will block posting to threads that are too old or low word count.
    2. No UI for viewing the contents of the xf_sv_post_friction_log table


    I recommend using Add-on install & upgrade or [#] Install and Upgrade to install this add-on.

    Version: 1.1.0
    Must have add-on. This is a great alternative to post count limit which in some situation could be a harsh measurement. A friendly way to warn members and effective! Awesome support from a great dev. Thanks Xon!

    Version: 1.0.1
    Requested this from @Xon to help cut down on spammy chatter posts in threads where it is undesirable via a soft word-count limit (rather than than the built-in board-wide hard limit.) Does exactly what I expected it to.
